Just ask Joey, Chris, or Grouchy.

Must please the RC Gods with a sacrifice. (Plastic only, we don't want some kid falling down and getting a hinge pin stuck in his head.)

We used to just toss the broken parts on the track, that angered the RC Gods and they gave us rain, famine, increased nitro pricing, and monster truck class.

We even wore capes and offered the Gods a crazy guy who would sit in the track and read to them on practice days.

The only thing that worked to thier pleasure was burying multiple Traxxas parts in the largest jump on the track. Then we had dry weather, free hotdogs, a girl called "Misty", and the discovery of the one called Hudy.

Who knows maybe it will catch on.
So your STILL burning up motors! You need to switch to some cheaper motors!

Try a Novarossi N21b with an Dynamite086 and Odonnel #77 glow plug , it won't let you down.

I was the crazy opinionated guy with the green car. I'm in Ohio on the run from the CIA.

Gots to change those air filters. I use proline filter packs from Amain with an Xray 808 Air filter housing. I also use that sticky quart bottle of Airfilter oil from a motorcycle shop. I thin it out a with Marvel mystery oil. I'm too cheap for real af oil. (I'm not done testing it, don't try it yet!)

New filter every time it gets dirty looking and I double up on the prefilter foam. (I keep the old prefilter foam and wrap it over the new filter and prefilter.......2 prefilters and one main.)

Guys Kimberly clark towel is your friend......a full 10" strip makes it around the losi filter 2 1/2 time's and basically prevents the micro dust from penetrating the pre filter....all i have to do in between rounds is pop the filter off and re wrap it....if its real dirty the edge's get a tiny ring of dirt which is Easily washed out and re oiled for next time.

the bands are from Walmart in the hair accessories dept.
